  1. Howdy. This thread certainly blew up, huh? So many opinions! So much feedback! Thanks for everyone letting us know how they felt about both proposed changes. Because we just provided updated files with the new changes, it's for the best that we close this thread so that we can focus on other parts of the playtest. With these changes, some models may need some additional adjustments. Please give us that feedback in the appropriate subforum. Thanks again for all of the help!

    Hey everyone, This week, we’re addressing some big things with small changes (lots and lots of small changes). We took a nice, long look at Conditions and how debilitating they can be to play against and made adjustments based on the feedback you all provided. Some models saw very slight numbers changes while others received more significant facelifts (no, Pandora, I’m definitely not talking about you – okay, fine I’m talking about you). Here’s what was updated this week: Changelog Typos, Grammar, and Wording “Stand Back! It’s Evidence!”: Adjusted wording so it now also includes “after resolving the current Action or Ability…” A Song of Night and Day (on Tengu and Squaler): changed “Heals” to “Heal” Pine Box Action: Cleaned up wording. Brutal Emissary: Cleaned up the wording on Into the Cage so it is clear as to who is Unburying the model. False Accusation: Adjusted wording to “Until the End Phase, the target gains the Undead Characteristic. Arik: Charge Up is now worded to be closer to how other similar effects are worded. Grimwell: Skull Saw – Adjusted so it now says “must either…” Immolate/Blood Poisoning: no longer specifies that the Action provides kill credit, as it is now specified on page 32 of the rulebook. Shenlong’s Wandering River Style: Changed to “Enemy only.” Unyielding: Now refers to the owner of the model for further clarity. Lynch: Dazed and Confused now spells out “three.” Rulebook Page 10, 23, 28, 30, 37: Soulstone use is now restricted to one at a time in all instances. Page 6: Removed a rule that was listed twice in two different ways to reduce confusion. Page 11: Resistance Triggers can’t be declared when disengaging. Page 25: Concentrate is now Once per Activation. Page 26: Cleaned up “Enemy only” special restriction text so that it also works for resistance Triggers. Page 31: Provided additional wording on how to draw LoS to a marker. Page 32: Distracted – reworded to be Actions that target enemy models. Page 32: Adjusted Injured so that it only affects Df and Wp and ends during the End Phase. Page 32: Adjusted Stunned so that it allows Bonus Actions to be used, but restricts them to also count toward a model’s Activation limit. (but it's still a Bonus Action, so only one can be taken per Turn) Page 32: Adjusted wording so it now states that if an Action kills a model using damage from a Condition, the model taking the action gets credit for the kill. Page 34: Cleaned up the Shockwave text example. Page 35: Gaining tokens from Replaced effects were moved from step 4 to step 3. Page 35: Replace now clarifies that Leader is a game effect in this instance. Page 35/37: Replaced effects work at the same time as Heal effects in regards to death timing. Page 38: Removed any and all references of Pass Tokens drawing cards (we swear this is the last time!) Page 46: Adjusted wording on Take Prisoner and Deliver a Message to be the same, but cleaner. Mechanics Arcanists Soulstone Miner: Drill into the Earth – gave Stat 5, TN 10. (Also worth noting that with the Stunned changes, this model is staying the same, so it can now Dig for Stones and Interact). Kamaitachi: Into the Vortex no longer deals extra damage (but still deals damage from Hazardous) Mechanical Doves: Smuggled Soulstone now kills the Doves. Sandeep: Summon Upgrade gained the “With Our Powers Combined” Ability, which allows for three Gamin to turn into a single Golem of the same type. Eternal Flame: Adjusted Heat Exhaustion to “During the Start Phase, enemy models within aura 6 with Burning gain Injured +1.” Snow Storm: Ice Tornado – Adjusted unnecessary wording. Stuffed Piglets: Reworked model so that it was easier to understand its intended functionality. Medical Automaton: Gained Quick Cure. Howard Langston: Gained Terrifying (11). Joss: Adjusted Arc Axe so that irreducible damage isn’t always built in. Replaced Spool Up with Hyper Reactor. Kaeris: Increased stat on On the Pyre by 1, adjusted Third Degree Burns. Firestarter: Gained Draw Out Secrets. Bayou Kin: Flinch is now a “may.” Big Hat: included the overhaul to Big Hat models from the small-batch update. Akaname: Gained Putrid Viscera. Mah Tucket: Gained “They Be Trash Vipers!” Trigger on Handful of Snakes. Test Subject: Adjusted Failed Experiment because of Injured adjustments.

Sanctioned Spellcaster: Changed Charge Collar so that it now gives -1 to duel totals until the end of Activation. Guild Guard: Increased Df by 1. Rifleman: Lowered stat on Clockwork Rifle by 1. Agent 46: Increased Health by 1, adjusted Inhuman Physiology so that it only works when he is attacking. Nurse Heartsbane: Corrected spelling on Straitjacket and reworked to be less restrictive. Printing Press: Lowered Weak damage by 1. Neverborn Thoon: Adjusted Frozen Trophy so that it only works if the marker was placed. Killjoy: Can now Activate after being Unburied. Woes: Re-woeked (okay, maybe that pun doesn’t work, but I had to try). Reworked Pandora’s Keyword. Lucid Dreams: Now shuffles a card back into your deck. Corrupted Hound: Increased stat on Snapping Jaws by 1. Grootslang: Gained Blindfighter. Outcasts Parker Barrows: Replaced Drop It! with Highway Robbery. Marlena/Rusty Alyce: Aetheric Healing – discarding a card is no longer a cost but an effect of the Action. Hannah Lovelace: Adaptive Tactics now works with Bonus Actions. Arik: Increased Cost by 1. Lazarus: Lowered Cost by 1. Von Schill: Custom Rifle now ignores Cover. Also adjusted Load Up so it is only Friendly non-Beast or Freikorps models.

Twist Reality: Is now a Projectile Action again. Seize Prey: Now limited to 12” (no longer LoS). Drunken Kung Fu: No longer affects damage flips. One thing that is important to mention: there will NOT be an update next week. We want the dust to settle. We want to see the game as-is in as many playtests as possible. We want to see hard data (as in battle reports!) based on the many changes we’ve made in the Open Beta. We also want to give you time to digest all of the rapid adjustments that have happened in the last month or so. So, in between this update and next, please take the time to look over everything, play Ten Thunders crews (seriously, please! - and report those games!), think about every crazy combination, play the game how you would normally play the game (without the playtester lens), try breaking the game if you’d like, and most importantly, enjoy yourselves.

  5. Hey Wyrdos, We found Waldo playing in the trash this week. Somehow, it didn’t surprise us in the slightest. What did surprise us, however, is the rare gem that he found among the garbage. After pushing away old pizza boxes and coffee tins (and a bottle of whiskey or two – don’t ask me how they got there), our favorite mischievous imp stumbled upon something that is only ever found on beaches and in cheesy 80’s songs: a message in a bottle. So, this week, we’re opening the bottle and unraveling the notes in this unique short story about a Crow Runner in The Other Side. You can either visit the website here or directly download the PDF by clicking on the link below. Enjoy! WaldosWeekly_0213.pdf
  6. We've begun the export process and hope to have updated files available today. EDIT: We've updated the files!
  7. Remote Detonator is now brought to you by Advil. It was an error on our part. It should do the same thing as it did last week.
  8. Yes, we're quickly finding out that there were a few snags in the exporting process that made some unintended changes. Waldo's up to something. If a change was made but it's not listed in the Changelog, please treat the effects as written from the previous update.
  9. Hey everyone, It looks like a few things zigged when they should have zagged in the latest update files. These things happen. It's one major reason why we run a Beta at all - to find the kinks in our system and to stomp them out. With over a thousand cards and thousands of Actions, Abilities, and Triggers, sometimes we miss a few bugs (or in the case of this update, more than a few). If a change was made but it was not listed in the Changelog, then the change was not intended (Execute and Remote Detonator, I'm looking at you). Please let us know what issues you found in this thread. Thanks for understanding!
  10. Burning has been this way since the start of the Open Beta and was tested for a significant amount of time during the Closed Beta. We have no intention of adjusting how Burning works. We're happy with how it works. Also, making a change like that would seriously impact a large number of models.
  11. The version number didn't get changed. It's an early step in the export process that was unintentionally skipped over. Because of the length of time it takes to export the files, it would eat up more time than it's worth to re-do the process to update the version number. We decided that because we are making significant adjustments to Som'er and Big Hat between this update and the next (which is stated in the changelog) that we were not going to address those types of issues in this update.
  12. Yep, sorry about that. It's a little late for us to make the change now, but we'll make sure it doesn't happen again in next week's update.
  13. The Riders are the exception, but not the rule.
  14. Yes, it does. While it was not our intent, and I can definitely appreciate the frustration this error might cause, it would take more time than it's worth to make that adjustment now. We'll make sure it doesn't happen again in the next update, though.
  15. Kyle

    Colette Card

    Good catch. We'll keep an eye on that. It'll likely need either a "Once per Activation" or "Once per Turn."
